There's been some publicity locally about a lot of money being spent on the local railway line. I previously mentioned this here. True, I'm aware that some modifications are required on the line so that a wider range of trains can operate on it, although $100 million seems a lot of money. But there are some marginal seats along the line, and an election is getting closer. Big amounts of money like this always scare me, but perhaps in the minds of our leaders, big figures are "impressive"?
Marcus Wong points out. Is there an issue about priorities here?
